an ambitious plan

Now that the death march hours should be finally over, I'm looking at the physical damage it's done. I haven't been to the gym in three weeks, and I've been consuming a lot of caffeine. My liver is sore, and my right leg/hip are aching enough that I'm getting a bit of a limp again.

I'm going to take it easy this week, just stretching and lower impact cardio, both to ease back into exercising, and to give myself more time to get ready for camping this coming weekend.

I'm also going to try to a "detox" - I am going to try to give up alcohol, caffeine and sweets for three weeks to give my body a chance to heal a bit. We'll see how possible it is; caffeine-free and driving on less than enough sleep can be risky, and sugar is usually my backup stimulant when I am avoiding caffeine.

Right now, I rather wish I could just crawl off and nap for a couple days.
